Tempting A Wrathful Deity
Just in time for Friday the 13th! Fresh blasphemy! Kewl!
I know there are quite a few links over there, but if you haven't checked out Overheard In New York, you're missing cultured exchanges like this:
Guy: Did you hear that the dude who shot the Pope got let go from jail?
Girl: Yeah, and the Pope forgave him and everything.
Guy: Wow, I totally want to shoot the Pope now!
Girl: Yeah, he'd probably be cool with it.
I understand this actually happened and was not written by James Frey, noted memoirist.
And here's yet another firearm footnote. The Pope is wielding a Colt 1911A1 semiautomatic .45 caliber pistol, popular with Vicars of Christ for nearly a century. This particular firearm was manufactured in 1943 and is currently owned and operated by the author. Hoo-ah.
